      It wasn't my best call preflop, but i did it. What about shoving on this flop? i had been offered 3,3:1 odds, so it's positive EV since i have 14 outs(9 flush cards, 2 nines, 3 aces)?

      Hi,


      Hard to say whether shoving or calling is better once you get bet/3bet into. Chances are UTG is ahead of us on the flop, but since we're have equity against anything we're not folding, the real question is whether there is more value in letting SB come along or not, since there is a chance SB would fold to a shove on your part but would overcall with a worse draw or marginal 9x hands.

      I think I like your call better, everybody will end up committed on the turn anyway, we just need to pray we run good at that point.


      Hope it helps.
